How to fix problem with access to application log from ASP.NET

How to fix problem with access to application log from ASP.NET
If you get error:
"Requested registry access is not allowed"
during "EventLog.WriteEntry" operation, then do this:
1) Create win application which will create Event Source for application log:
private void TestForm_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
System.Diagnostics.EventLog.CreateEventSource("LogName", "Application");

2) You must have Administrator's privileges on the computer which will be used as Web Server (your ASP.NET code will log into Application log of this computer).
3) Execute "EventLog.CreateEventSource" piece of code.
4) Your Web-application must use only this "LogName" source in "EventLog.WriteEntry" method call.

SMTP Authentication in ASP.NET

Do you want to send email in ASP.NET and your SMTP server requires SMTP authentication?

Here is the code to do that:
public static void SendMail(
string mailTo,
string mailFrom,
string mailSubject,
string mailBody,
string mailCc,
string mailBcc,
string smtpServer,
string userName,
string password)
System.Web.Mail.MailMessage mailMessage = new System.Web.Mail.MailMessage();
mailMessage.From = mailFrom;
mailMessage.To = mailTo;
mailMessage.Subject = mailSubject;
mailMessage.Body = mailBody;
mailMessage.Cc = mailCc;
mailMessage.Bcc = mailBcc;
mailMessage.BodyFormat = System.Web.Mail.MailFormat.Text;

const int cdoBasic = 1;
const int cdoSendUsingPort = 2;

mailMessage.Fields.Add("", cdoBasic);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", userName);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", password);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", cdoSendUsingPort);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", smtpServer);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", 10);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", 25);
mailMessage.Fields.Add("", false);
